Session Control Cookie: Session control cookies are used on most Websites today because they facilitate navigation. In order to use the Website and access the Electronic Publications, Authorized Users must have their browsers set to accept cookies.
Once an Authorized User is signed onto the Website, Wiley’s Web server uses a temporary cookie to help Wiley manage the visit to the service. This Session Control Cookie is deleted when the Authorized User clicks on the Logout button or when the Authorized User quits the browser. This cookie allows Wiley to quickly determine access control rights and personal preferences during the online session. The Session Control Cookie is set out of necessity and not out of convenience.
Remember Me Cookie: When an Authorized User registers to gain access to the Website, the Authorized User is asked to choose a user name and password.

Authorized Users have the option of storing this information on their computers as a permanent cookie by selecting the ‘Remember Me’ option when logging in. This feature is optional and user controlled. The Remember Me cookie can be deleted at any time by clicking on the Logout button.
Authorized Users must be careful not to store their user name and password as a cookie on any computer that is not their own, since doing so would enable other users coming to that computer to access the Electronic Publications under their name and to have access to their My Profile page.
